Britain’s Andy Murray has named three young players who could be the next ‘big three’.

Murray picked out a trio of young players and another player who he feels could win Grand Slams in the future.

The first man Murray singled out was 23-year-old Greek World No 5, Stefanos Tsistipas, who came close to knocking off Rafael Nadal at the Australian Open.

“The players that I like to watch? I like watching [Stefanos] Tsitsipas, I think he has a great game,” Murray told the Moselle Open Youtube Channel.

Tsitsipas is an all-court player with a huge future and the potential to win a mountain of Grand Slams.

Murray believes Spanish teenager Carlos Alcaraz has a huge future in the game.

“I like watching [Carlos] Alcaraz as well. I know he is a little young but I think he’s going to be great for tennis. He is a top player,” said Murray.

Alcaraz has charged into the top 20 and his maturity has been lauded by compatriot Pablo Carreño Busta.

Murray believes that Lorenzo Musetti has all the tools to be a great clay court champion

“[Lorenzo] Musetti on clay, I’ve really enjoyed watching his game as well, so there isn’t just one,” Murray Added.

Musetti is yet to win a singles title on tour, but Murray feels that he will be a force on clay in years to come.

Murray also believes that new World No 1 Daniil Medvedev will enjoy more success on the tour and in Grand Slams.

“And I know he’s not young, but I do really like watching [Daniil] Medvedev play too. I think he’s got a very different game style to a lot of players.

“He looks very unorthodox and I like people that aren’t your textbook tennis player.

“It depends, a lot of coaches I think in the UK are very fascinated by technique and strokes, but he doesn’t have that. He is unbelievably smart on the court.”
